Pricing for Latest Sun Glassfish/MySQL/Solaris SPECjAppServer2004 benchmark

720 JOPS pricing

Some while ago a technical hitch was noted on the Sun/Glassfish/MySQL result referenced here, the hitch was a small configuration error which mean't that the result didn't follow the SPECjAppServer run rules to the letter and so the result was removed from the SPEC web site (marked non compliant). Sun is committed to using and improving open source software and so with help from MySQL we resubmitted and republished this benchmark at SPEC. The updated result uses almost the same configuration as the initial result the signifcant changes were to use a StorageTek 3510 disk array and to use an updated release of the Sun 9.0 application server (Glassfish). You can find the new an improved result of 720.56 SPECjAppServer2004 JOPS@Standard at http://www.spec.org/jAppServer2004/results/res2007q2/jAppServer2004-20070411-00063.html

Summary of price/performance

So using the bill of materials (BOM) from the submission the price of the entire hardware and software stack is $US 59,260 (see below for calculations)
The price performance of this result is 59,260/720.56 or $US 82.24/JOPS

Please notice that the price analysis includes all of the major components hardware and software listed in the BOM.

I believe that this result demonstrates the leading price/performance for this benchmark (by a long way).

A couple of important notes / disclaimers :

  • The SunFire X4100 servers used in the submission are now older models, the current and (very similar) model is the SunFire X4100 part number A86-FGZ2BH4GKBA listed under “Config 3-M2” for which the price is listed at $US 5945.00 at the Sun shop

  • The prices below are in $US

  • All prices for Sun products below come from the Sun web site http://www.sun.com and hence the web site is the correct place to make purchasing enquiries or to check on my calculations

  • The prices are listed here for illustrative purposes only and are from the web site as at June 2007

  • I haven't included support in this calculation it looks at acquisition cost only

  • I haven't included the price of the screen and keyboard as this is a cost common to all submissions and only a minor amount
